So, the big hose from the throttle body to the air filter housing wasn't really on tight, it just kinda lifted off, so I sprayed some starting fluid in the throttle body and had my friend try to start the car, and the car just belched a fireball back up out of the throttle body... makes me think there's spark with an intake valve open... I asked a few more questions.
She said she had recently had a new timing belt put on, I asked about the spark plug wires and she's sure they're on in the right order. Is compression testing still my next course, or is there possibly a timing issue, or something else?
